Hey! I've bought a lot of lovely arty things recently. There was the print fair last weekend and Thought Bubble festival this weekend so I obviously couldn't not buy anything- especially at Thought Bubble which was overwhelmed with art! I thought it'd be nice to share everything here on my blog.
Above is a sweet little collection of things I bought from Amber Hsu; as well as beautiful A4/A3 prints she also produces tiny little prints and writes poetry too. I absolutely loved the small prints and the zine of one pound poems- I went back to her stall multiple times as I was in so much awe.

I picked up this really cute zine about having 'me time' by Seekan Hui - it has a cut out in the middle which allows it to stand freely so I was super happy I can display it on my bedside table. Sometimes I get put off buying books and zines because they end up shoved in a drawer or on a shelf and I kind of forget about them after a while.

I've been a fan of Ellen Stubbings' (So Cute Company) work for a while now and I was happy when I found out she was going to be at Thought Bubble! I purchased the really cute Donkey print as this was my favourite page from Weird Cat. The funky dancing rabbit man is a digital print from Hollie Smith who is studying Illustration at LCA and the creepy one armed girl is a postcard gifted to me from Laura Jayne.
There was a mixture of more "professional" artists and independent illustrators at Thought Bubble but I love supporting the smaller stands; these are usually my favourite because everything seems much more loved and handmade. Now I just need to find some wall space for all of these prints... ♦
